Yb:YAG is one of the most promising laser-active materials and more suitable?for diode-pumping than the traditional Nd-doped systems. Compared with the?commonly used Nd:YAG crystal, Yb:YAG crystal has a much larger absorption?bandwidth to reduce thermal management requirements for diode lasers, a?longer upper-laser level lifetime, three to four times lower thermal loading?per unit pump power. Yb:YAG crystal at 1030nm is a good substitute for a Nd:YAG crystal at 1064nm and its second harmonic at 515nm may replace Ar-ion laser (with a large volume), which emit at 514nm.
